I had a major a Marilyn Monroe moment!
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This was my first experience with RTR, and it wow, couldn't have been better! I wore this gown to my sorority formal and felt absolutely stunning in it! After reading the reviews for this same gown in black and talking with a RTR stylist, I opted for the 6R and 4R. This dress does run long--I'm 5'7 and wore 3" heels and the regular length was pretty close to perfect. I would have preferred it to be maybe 1/2-1" longer, but because it has a slight train, I didn't mind too much (not to mention it was better for dancing!). I tried on the 6R first, assuming since I always wear size 6 that it would be perfect, but since I got a second size for free, I decided to try on the 4 for kicks. While the size 6 fit nicely, the size 4 took the dress from pretty to va-va-voom! It hugged my curves the way it does on the model and fit much better in the bust area. This silhouette is so sexy and flattering, and the peplum really emphasizes an hourglass figure. Oh, and the fabric has a great weight to it and even a little stretch, so it's less constricting than it looks! Overall, I was in L-O-V-E with this gown and I felt so glamorous in it! Order a size down and be prepared to make some jaws drop!
